A pivot pin 95 is mounted in the upwardly projecting portion 16 of one of the side portions of the frame and provides a pivotal connection for a motor support 96 which carries a powerful electric motor 97 (i.e., 100 to 200 horsepower). The shaft of said motor is connected to a sheave 98 having grooves which receive a series of V-belts 99. The tension of the belts may be adjusted by adjusting the position of the adjusting rod 11MB which is interposed between the support 96 and the side portion Q4 as shown in FIG- URE 1. The knock-out bar 43 may be employed, when punches and dies are used on the press, to separate the punch or die from the Work during retraction of the ram.
Three blow heading machines – These machines utilize two solid dies along with three punches and are classified as special machines. Having the same basic design as double stroke heading machines, these machines provide the additional advantage of extruding or upsetting in the first die before double blow heading or heading or trimming in the second die. Three blow heading machines combine the process of trapped extrusion and upsetting in one single machine to produce special fasteners having small shanks but large heads.
parts with long length-to-diameter ratios, undercuts or “choke” diameters, and complex parts with multiple features. Method to make hollow shaped holes, where material flows backward around a penetrating punch. In PM coatings are used to improve the properties of some types of tools. Each coating -TiN, TiAlN, AlCrN, amongst others- provides specific supplementary properties to the tool whether it be a punch or a die. TEMSA works with the best companies in the market of coating application in order to offer its clients the best options to increase the performance of their tools.
Forward extrusions force the material through a smaller diameter orifice, thereby reducing its diameter and increasing its length. The starting material may be partially or totally contained in the tooling before the start of this type of extrusion. Cold Forming, Hot Forging, and Machining are all common methods of making fasteners. Today we’re going to take a look at each method and point out some benefits and drawbacks to each one. Markets served include the Automotive, Electrical, Recreational, Hardware, Outdoor Power Equipment, Lawn And Garden, Distribution, Hand Tools and Molded rubber/plastic products industries. Cold Heading/Forming provides for consistent higher quality as surface finish will mirror the smooth condition and dimensions of the dies; usually eliminating secondary finishing.
Products which are taken up through Bar Route and machined can be formed on this Multi-Station Part former.

Each type of fastener or component has its’ very own series of punches, dies, and hammers which have been engineered to a unique specification. Material requirements also play a role in how the progression is designed. Softer metals will form more readily (e.g. Copper, Aluminum) while harder metals (e.g. Stainless Steel, Nickel Alloy) may require multiple blows to achieve its’ final form. Cold heading is more efficient than machining, allowing rapid production of large quantities while maintaining tolerances as close as +/- .002″ without secondary operations.
Fastener EurAsia Magazine reaches fastener dealers, wholesalers, and end users as well as sales, purchasing and manufacturing officers around the world. A chamfer angle between 25° – 40° is suitable for the vast majority of Solid Pin applications and allows for maximum pin engagement. From a manufacturing standpoint, the optimal cutting angle is 45°, while the optimal forming angle is 30° or less.

From the description given above, it is clear that the main difference with other metal forming processes, like hot forging or casting, is the fact that there is no need to heat or melt the metal. Another important characteristic of the cold forming process is that it usually increases the hardness and the yield and tensile strengths of the metal part formed. As it was mentioned before, cold forming requires high pressure, usually obtained by means of a slide, a finger bender or a press, and a die. For the most complex shapes, it is usually necessary to use more than one die and more than one blow. Thread forming is a manufacturing process that involves the creation of internal threading.
Reed & Prince has recurring orders of around 1,000 for special large wood screws used in Atlantic City to repair the boardwalk, and ongoing production of many millions per year of small pins with precision grooves and knurling. Other sources recommend quantities in the hundreds of thousands or millions. The machine of this invention is designed to handle many different types of metal forming work and, therefore, is exceptionally well suited for the small manufacturer having limited funds for capital equipment. It is no longer necessary to have additional equipment de signed for special operations since such operations can be performed on the press of this invention.
Another object of the invention is to provide a simple cold forging press which may be operated at slower working speeds when forming soft metal parts than when forming hard metal parts and which mass produces such parts at minimum cost. Although machining is more costly than cold heading, setup costs are significantly lower for machining. Companies that standardize on Solid Pin sizes are able to mitigate setup costs so there is a negligible cost impact to customers. However, setup costs can be significant for custom designs, especially at low volumes. Table 4 outlines general differences between cold heading and machining setup. At this point, you may be wondering about the limitations of cold heading and what exactly can be achieved through the cold forming process.
